Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: TDIH- Over-rated!

Yeah, I don't really hold much faith or pay much attention to "ratings" and reviews and such. In terms of both positive AND negative reviews. Categorizations and rating scales and all that do have some use or significance, but are not really things that comes into factoring what I decide I like or don't like. In general terms, at most they tend to be suggestions for things I might decide to put in the playlist for the day. They can be good signposts in terms of specifics; ways of pointing out rare jams, unique strings of songs or arrangements, etc.

When it comes to Grateful Dead shows, the similarities far outweigh the differences. There's always some subjective peak moment/s, more mundane, perfunctory moments, song/s you love, song/s you hate, etc.

All's I know is, I really really like 2/26, and have no interest in debating subjective opinions on whether it's "top 5 of the year" or "top 5 of all time" or "has a top 3 performance of Playing in the Band for the year and a top 10 performance of it of all time." I'm more like Latvala, whatever I'm currently listening to that is blowing me away, THAT'S the best show ever.
